Good-natured silliness
23 August 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

Fleeing town to avoid a fight is a common tale - although how many of those end in the coward starting his own farm, harvesting nicotine tomatoes and courting Big Tobacco?

It's fairly thin on plot (actually A.D.D., given the gag-a-minute approach) but oh man, the gags are funny. Homer does battle with a tractor, a raccoon and common sense. And the jokes come one after another. it's a worthwhile distraction.

7/10
